Benedict Cumberbatch executes amazing aerial Oscars photobomb on U2
Cumberbatch cleared Bono by several feet
If ever there were a surly band in need of a good photobombing it is U2, and fortunately Benedict Cumberbatch was on the Oscars red carpet to oblige last night.
The band lined up for photographers outside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, only for the Sherlock actor to pop up like the otter that he is behind them, hands raised aloft.
U2 continued to pose unfazed, with Cumberbatch then jumping up for a second time to make absolutely sure someone captured his mid-air photobomb.
Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres also got involved in photo-based fun at the Los Angeles ceremony, managing to break the record for the most retweeted image ever with a little help from Jared Leto, Brad and Angelina, Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyong'O and many, many more.

DeGeneres' tweet attracted 80,000 tweets in its first three minutes, and went on to pass one million in under an hour.

Jennifer Lawrence was also the subject of a vast amount of tweets, dazzling on the red carpet in a slender Dior dress and taking a fall for the second year running.
Arguably the wackiest GIF of the night however saw Meryl Streep and Pharrell Williams shimmying to his track Happy.
